Just wanted to thank you for the excellent GPX file of the Chalkland Way that you provided. I could load it on to my Garmin and it was perfect. Thank you for giving your time for free, so that others don't get lost!

Hi, thank you for your efforts in creating this site, it's given me the confidence to resume my passion following recovery from illness. Last week my daughter and I completed the Flamborough Head, Dane's Dyke walk. The views were breathtaking and the birds! Glad we had our binoculars. This is a great resource, thanks.

Thanks for all your work on this great website. I've done most of the Peak District walks this summer. Just a heads up on the Rivelin Valley walk. I did the walk in the opposite direction as I wanted to go uphill and took a wrong turn left (south) at Rivelin Dams and found myself climbing the gorge that Wyming Brook flows through. It's a stunning walk with lots of waterfalls and footbridges and if you ever do this walk again I recommend that you take the same detour. It really does improve the route. Best Regards, Mick

Went on my first ramble in Whitby on last weekend, I have a taste for it now and just found your site. It has given me a lot of inspiration. Good travels.

Hi, I am a new walker in life... also fairly new to West Yorkshire... and I must say I am absolutely loving your website. So much inspiration of where to start and what to aim for. Thank you for your efforts!
From: Huma Kahn Location: West Yorkshire Country: England Date: Sunday 07 July 2019
Hi Mike, We are two 20 something guys who really enjoy your walks. We wondered if you had ever thought about creating a book with them in? As we would buy it. Thanks for your time. Phil
From: Phil Knight and Calum Location: Leeds Country: England Date: Saturday 06 July 2019
Love your website, we use it all the time so thank you for all the effort you have put into creating and maintaining it!

Dear Mike... I love reading your blogs about your travels, and they inspired a group of us from work to get out and do some walking! Two years ago we did Looe to Polperro and I thought at times it was a little strenuous. On July 7th we are tackling your Newlands Horseshoe walk. I must admit I’m a little apprehensive about this as 18 months ago I had a cruciate ligament operation on my left knee.
I really don’t want to let the side down, but more importantly myself down.
Keep up the fabulous tales of your walks and thank you.

Great job brother. Excited to trek some of your gpx. Thank you for putting this together. Continue!

hi Mike, I just wanted to send a message of real appreciation, my partner and I have done a number of your walk routes over the years, along with our dogs, and we’ve just finished your Corn Du, Pen y Fan, Cribyn and Fan y Big route and it was sensational, the British weather even played its part. Thanks for all that you do, I really enjoy following your travels on social media and Mrs Walking Englishman saving you from time to time. Keep up the great work and enjoy your travels.
From: Sam Whitmore Location: East Anglia Country: England Date: Sunday 09 June 2019
Just wanted to thank you for all the great information you have provided over the years. Always my go to site for any walks near places we are staying and having this available has helped my other half have more confidence ( given my navigation was quite poor until Mobile GPS was more available ). Maintaining this site and continuing to develop it must take a lot of effort so wanted to let you know its appreciated.
From: Andrew Chrich Location: Nottingham Country: England Date: Saturday 08 June 2019
Eeh Mike, How you've grown over the years. From a few popular walks to all these. And they're helping so many folk. Well done lad. I'm now onto using the gpx files that you post. Keep well.
From: Erica Manne Location: Scunthorpe Country: England Date: Tuesday 04 June 2019
Hallo Walking Englishman, As you have probably noticed, I live in Germany and my e.mail is nl, meaning I am Dutch. I have visited and walked in the UK for some 35 years, mainly in the Lake Distrcit (AW enthusiast) and time allowing many other beautiful sites. As I am visiting the South Pennines and Peak District, end of June, a new territory for me, I googled walks around Hebden Bridge, and, bingo, there you were. I just want to thank you very much. Your website is great. All what I wanted to know was there. So, it gives me great pleasure to browse and read. As you know the preparations are next to the actual holiday very enjoyable.
Hartelijke groeten van een Nederlandse fan. (warm greatings from a Dutchfan).
Hi. Just wanted to say thanks for the Shelf Moor and Bleaklow walk you posted. Myself and 4 friends plus 2 dogs followed your route on Sunday 19th May 2019 and loved it. Luckily the Peat bogs were not too bad and we did not get too wet. Loved the views and seeing the aircraft wreckage was strange but very peaceful. Please keep posting, we are going to follow more of your routes in the Peak District. Happy walking, Chris

Hi Mike, thank you for a great resource which has inspired me and the wife over the last two years. Kind regards, Paul
From: Paul Hollinrake Location: Rossendale Country: England Date: Friday 17 May 2019
I just wanted to say what a truly fabulous resource you have created. It is full of all the stuff I want to know about the hills and fells that I cannot find anywhere else and I am sure I am not alone in being ever so grateful to you. Keep blogging!
From: Gemma Drac Location: Leeds Country: England Date: Thursday 09 May 2019
What a fantastic website! I found this site after researching alternatives in case my planned 110 cycle ride from Kettlewell is abandoned due to the forecasted bad weather. Thanks for a great resource. I'm sure I will return to try more of these walks in the future.
From: Andy Baggott Location: Lincoln Country: England Date: Thursday 25 April 2019
Mike, having just returned from the Peak District I just wanted to express my thanks for the recommendation of the Mam Tor Ridge walk you suggested to me back in January. Obviously we were supported by fabulous weather but we managed to tag Lose Hill onto the walk as well giving us an epic day out. It goes without saying that my friends and I will be returning to the Peak District for further exploration and your site will be my starting point for information. All the best.
From: Andrew McDonald Location: Newbury Country: England Date: Tuesday 23 April 2019
This website is great! Really enjoying the routes and descriptions on it.
From: Chris Long Location: Selby Country: England Date: Thursday 11 April 2019
We completed the Devil’s Bridge walk from your web site on Thursday. It was absolutely superb and we found all the spots that you highlighted. We are just getting into walking so thank you for keeping us the right track. Hopefully we will use your web site more and more as we get into walking.
From: Imran Ahmed Location: Blackburn, Lancashire Country: England Date: Monday 25 March 2019
Hi, I just wanted to say a quick thank you. We live in north Staffordshire and have up until now taken the Peak District a little for granted. However recently we decided to start to walk as preparation for a trip to the Andes later in the year. This weekend we undertook the Six Dales Circuit, although we split it into 2 days with a night camping at Monyash. This was ideal as it gave us chance to carry our gear and give it a road test. Without your website, the inspiration it provides and the excellent route description for this walk I don’t think we would have dared tackle it! So thank you for helping us get out there, and for the route plan that helped keep us from getting lost and maintaining marital harmony!
From: Will Hulme Location: North Staffordshire Country: England Date: Sunday 25 February 2019
Thank you. I really enjoyed our walk yesterday - I was looking for some inspiration for something a little different and your walk from East Witton fitted the bill. Walking through the farm near the start, and then through the abbey grounds just after half way were treats. I uploaded the route into my MemoryMap application and followed everything on the 1:25,000 OS (which I had not done before either). Everything worked a treat. I really appreciate the time you have spent putting this resource together and I will be dipping into it often. Thanks again. John, Robert and Jasper (our German Shorthaired Pointer).

Dear Mike, I stumbled across your website on Friday when I was planning a trip to the Yorkshire Dales with my two children aged 7 and 10. They are pretty good walkers but not familiar with hills as we live in Essex! I wanted to do an easy training walk on Saturday and then a mountain on Sunday. Conistone Dib and Pie proved perfect for the Saturday warm-up, and gave me the confidence to take the children on your Pen-y-Ghent route on Sunday. I'm quite an experienced mountain walker myself but obviously I had to plan carefully to make sure the children were safe on the snowy hills. I just want to thank you for sharing your routes. The children had an amazing weekend and your website really helped me get the most out of our trip. Thank you so much. Best regard, Phil.

Hi, I am really enjoying your county tops sections of your website. Since discovery in September, I have bagged six tops, and had lots of adventures along the way. I have developed a pattern of missing the actual highest points on first attempt most times! For example the changes in quarrying works meant I had to forshorten my route in Leicestershire, and go back to bag the top another day. As for Kinder Scout, well, I will say I have done it, but I am not so sure, even after the second attempt. Waiting for better weather and the company of my daughter and her mobile technology to help me out on third try. I am now going to write a journal of my efforts so I keep track of what I have done when. Thanks so much for the website!
From: Mary O’Reilly Location: Nottingham Country: England Date: Monday 28 January 2019
Hi Mike, just been taking a look at your site and it’s a fantastic resource with great descriptions, quality details, lovely photos, very inspiring for some walks I’m looking to do during the year particularly the waterfalls walk in Brecon Beacons this spring. I keep a blog detailing my walking experiences on coastal walks in Pembrokeshire as that is my main focus. If you’d like to take a look and offer any feedback to a novice that would be appreciated.. www.shortwalkslongpaths.com.
All the best, Rich

Thank you for providing gpx files with your walks. I have just sent the link to your site to my parents who are amazed at the content! They are very keen walkers. I am actually going to use your routes for trail and fell running, but have always searched circular walks as there are far more available. Thanks again.
From: Dan Speakman Location: Weston Super Mare Country: England Date: Saturday 26 January 2019
Hi. I planned a trip to the Lake District a couple of years ago and I used this website as the main source of information. The trip was a success. We really enjoyed all the hikes. This year I am planning a trip to Wales... And of course walkingenglishman will be my choice! This website is a real treasure. Many thanks for keeping it all up!
From: Begoña Location: Bilbao Country: Spain Date: Friday 18 January 2019
I have come across your website several times whilst researching different trails I have been interested in. Your site is really great to read and I have just found your walk North to South Britain. The way you have linked up all the trails is genius. Cannot believe I have never thought of these all together like that. It is really great to read!! Thank you so much for having the energy to make notes etc after a days hike and then turning it into something useful for others to read and use!
